looking at the break in the video (2:09) the chainstay failed at the horst point, and the material there seems a bit on the thin/light side compared to the rest of the rear end. it will be interesting to see what Rocky has to say about the failure.
I don't think the double bearing set-up helped either. And I think Rocky has released a statement with the regard, We have no issues to be concerned with. This is a isolated incident. When they broke the Pole on the paper thin gusset. That was a whole shit show.
Pole's reaction to that Incident didn't win them any fans.
He,s famous for making friends LOL.
Regardless , they admitted the design was under built. And showed the corrections in the design.
I believe it was very low batch bike as well. Not a mass produced product flooding the market.
